Louis Tomlinson recently joined the ranks of fellow Brit Robert Pattinson when he revealed that he may just be a bit unconfident about his physique. The Breaking Dawn actor has previously admitted he wished Edward Cullen had a six-pack (he has Taylor Lautner, a.k.a. Jacob, to stand up to, after all). Now it looks like a case of body envy may be invading One Direction, too; Zayn Malik lately admitted he’d like a few extra inchesÂ—in height, that isÂ—and now Tomlinson has come out with his own desire to add a few poundsÂ—of pure muscle.
“To get a better body,” Tomlinson told Now magazine, as Sugarscape reports, when journalist Dan Wooton inquired what he would change about himself. “I’m working on it. I’m in training at the moment.”
He already seems pretty fit, but it sounds like Louis Tomlinson is putting in some serious workout time. However, his main form of exercise may instead revolve around running away from the crush of Directioners that constantly follow his and the rest of the band’s every move!
Of course, his preferred form of recreation may trend more skater boy rather than gym rat. He even recently showed off his passion via a tattoo depicting a skateboarding stick figure on his arm.
That said, it’s actually kind of hard to imagine any of the One Direction guys pumping iron and downing protein shakes! And chances are Tomlinson’s girlfriend, Eleanor Calder, thinks he’s perfect just as he is. Plus, he’s only 20, so he has plenty of time to bulk up and buff out.
